Tonight’s concert features Tookany Creek, Philadelphia’s finest bluegrass band. Beth Mead (banjo), Larry Cohen (bass), John Catterall (mandolin & guitar), and Paul Kenney (guitar) (vocals everybody) deliver exciting three-part harmonies, innovative arrangements, and a sophisticated blend of traditional and contemporary bluegrass, folk, country, and swing.
Opening tonight’s concert is Russ Rentler. In 2016, Russ retired from medical practice. This has finally allowed him to pursue his life-long dream and passion of performing original and traditional music. He counts Bob Dylan, John McCutcheon and Walt Michaels as major influences in his style. His live performances are a mix of folk, celtic and blues-inspired tunes with multiple instrument changes interspersed with his off-beat humor and wry observations about life that keep the audiences coming back for more.
